As many as 8 million Chinese tourists are expected to visit Thailand throughout this year, Srisuda Wanapinyosak, a deputy governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand.

This is significantly higher than the 6 million Chinese visitor arrivals earlier forecast by the agency.

Of that total, nearly 2 million are expected to come over during this year’s fourth quarter, beginning in October, which usually marks a high season for Thai tourism.

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) along with representatives from the Airports of Thailand, the Immigration Bureau, Thai Airways International and True Corporation hosted a special welcoming ceremony to the 24 millionth visitor, Miss Sophie Czich from French Republic who arrived in the kingdom at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport on October 29.

Just about two weeks ago, on the 15th of Octobre Thailand saw the arrival of its 23 millionth visitor who flew into the northern city of Chiang Mai from Hong Kong.

This shows that Thailand is set to meet and exceed the tourist projection of 28.8 million visitors for 2015 and that international tourists are now entering the country via several of Thailand’s regional airports as well as Bangkok.
